What is Nonviolent Communication?
Nonviolent Communication is a practice developed by Marshall Rosenberg. It's based on some very simple universal truths: everyone has the same basic human needs (community, belonging, to be seen and heard, etc) and everything we do is an attempt to meet a need. And if we can connect with each other at the level of these basic human needs, conflict dissolves and authentic connection grows spontaneously. Not just a method of communicating, NVC is also a tool for profound self-awareness, a model for understanding what motivates the human race, and a system to foster peace through nonviolence.
